can't use iPhone as a remote control for PMP on MacBook

I'm trying to use my iPhone as a remote control for PMP on my MacBook, but it doesn't show up in the player list. The only option I have for a player is the iPhone. Is there some setting in PMP that I am missing?

Could it be that I am using hotel wifi? Both devices are connected. I can play content from my media library on both devices, I just can't get the iPhone app to see the MacBook PMP.

Thanks for your help.

    One more bit of information: the PMP on the MacBook knows when I am playing something on my iPhone — it shows up in the Status screen.
